It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect your sites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very simple. Unlike some other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its initial state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so in case you host multiple sites, you can easily isolate them from one another in order to keep them safe. The option must be activated for every single site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to control and protect all your websites. In case that a site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website before you know it as we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
